Visions of Wales

This course is a celebration of Welsh artists, and those who have been inspired by Wales.

How have artists attempted to capture Wales, its people and its traditions on canvas? How do Welsh artists fit into the canon of art history? Why have many great Welsh artists been forgotten?

We will consider these questions, among others, by looking at artworks from the 18th century to the present day. Works by Sir Kyffin Williams, Graham Sutherland, JMW Turner and Josef Herman will be explored among others. We will also take a special look at Alfred Sisley, who painted the South Wales coastline at Penarth.
